Managing Antiretroviral (ARV) Side Effects
, Danny West
Danny West is a trainer, coach, and leadership consultant, has been living with HIV for the past 24 years, and remains healthy today, having been successfully treated with antiretroviral medications (ARVs) for the last five years. There are many treatments available today for HIV. Anyone who is on âcombination therapyâ is on a combination of multiple drugs. Early on, Danny was treated with AZT alone. In his case, the side effects of AZT monotherapy bothered him and he decided to go off AZT at that time. Since then, more antiretroviral medications have been developed, and he is now on a combination therapy that works well for him and has minimal side effects that he can manage and live with. The side effects no longer interfere with his everyday life. His viral load is undetectable, and his CD4 count is increasing. His immune system is functioning effectively and is keeping HIV at bay.
